General & Family Physician 's  Response
An athlete is exercising regularly so his cardio respiratory system is toned up, his body heart and lungs are used to respond gradually to a exercise chanllange, heart can pump more blood in case of exercise due to pre conditioning. So an average person who is not exercising the heart rate will go up fast and achieve maximum in short time and get exhausted while athletes do not.
